1. Piracy Trend 2022
The ICC IMB’s annual report recorded 115 incidents of piracy and armed robbery against ships in 2022 – compared to 132 in 2021 – with half of them occurring in Southeast Asian waters, particularly in the Singapore Straits, where incidents continue to rise.
The continued and much needed reduction is attributed to an overall decrease of piratical activity in in the highly risky waters of the Gulf of Guinea – down from 35 incidents in 2021 to 19 in 2022.
